In the vein of so many other stories where a young adult stuck in a mundane life suddenly finds a secret world, this is a fantasy that I think is worthwhile watching. There are some great characters (my favourites being the sadistic brothers Mr. Croup and Mr. Vandemaar) all set in London Below, a city that is not visible to normal folks.

It's not startling, special affects are rare, but you can tell it is based on a good story, and it comes from a time when the BBC made some interesting stuff.

The novel was actually much better than the show.
